Autumn Tree Tops 2012

Autumn 2012 was a a rather disappointing year for Fall foliage in New England, because it was MOSTLY green, rained and knocked several leaves off just as they were turning, very erratic weather patterns.

It was also a generally warm autumn.

The 1 place that could have some colors, other than GREEN & YELLOW was the Colonial Graveyard near my home. You could actually find ORANGE....

You can't always see good colors up in New England, but some years are utterly amazing! The past 2 years weren't.

 No filters on these frames. I was experimenting with a wide angle fisheye.

Hey, ya never know until you try.

Mostly just focusing on the tree tops with minimal background in the composition.
And, I was experimenting with a Dutch Tilt.

Macro stuffs... mostly just sticking with the presets....
*shrugs* -everyone seems to like these....

A bit more Orange:

What The Blizzard Looked like From Inside The Building!

OK, last Snow blog.... I think...

Here's what the snow looked like from the inside, looking out.

Still haven't been able to afford to replace these windows/doors yet....

They leak....

The snow splatter on the screen, frozen stuck.... 

The view from the front lobby, snowed-in a bit:

And, the view from the back exit. It's snowed in so bad, you can't even walk outside.

The Big Blizzard At Night!

The flash on this one REALLY made this frame look like a snowglobe using my wide angle fisheye lens!

This blizzard was really terrible! I couldn't even stay out in it for very long.

Most of the frames I got, I couldn't even use.

This is it:

Gloomy New England Snow Storm

This was 1 of the 1st snow storms we had in 2013.

You can;t see the falling snow, because it wouldn't catch it. But, I shot these in the snow, and it kept getting into my eyes.

Here are some other experimental ones with a Fisheye:

I really don;t know why the scripting got all weird here... and I have no idea how to fix it. I've tried everything I could think of, and I give up. *throws up hands*

New England Snow Globe Photos

Snow globe photography in New England

I'd purchased a Japanese wide angle fisheye lens last year, specifically because I wanted to shoot in the snow. I'm still learning it, and need more practice with it. But, I like experimenting. It's a macro, lens but I like edgeier ways to play with photography.

I'd seen other photographers play with things for winter, and I was very inspired by that.

So, here you can see how it's fun for winter, because it makes your world look like it's captured inside of a snow globe.
